address these kind of concerns which would be useful in the long term but detrimental in the short term and they would pay a heavy political price for the increase in crime on the basic security that would come with this reform. if you talk a little bit about that and also in tunisia i was there a couple of weeks ago, and one of the topics that came up quite a bit was the attacks on the u.s. embassy and while those of us here that might obviously highlight the need for the securities sector reform i feel like a lot of tunisian actors interpret things very different and to some the less says that we need stronger security forces and that some of the changes, some of the modest changes we might see as positive and the very modest direction of the reform over the past year are seen by some as a cause for the week security forces and the call for incidents like the attacks on the embassies. if you can comment on this tension and how to address that. >> the iron fist notes the outrage. you want to jump in on this? >> sure. i mean, first of all i would sort of like to the secure a sector refo
part of the historic results of this last week where he had 20 women in the u.s. senate, and historic number and rebecca rightly reminded us that it was in part because of things like emily's list that i want to have a conversation about the kind of institutions and the organizations that have been working quiet they all this time to make this moment possible. i don't have to say something about emily's list. >> families list within washington politics, it is an incredibly powerful force. at some point they were the largest organization. i don't know if that's still true, in the day of the super pacs, they are not the largest anybody. so emily's list is an organization that supports democratic pro-choice women for all kinds of offices around the country. they are very powerful and have been working really hard for a long time to get more women effect did. other celebration about the creator of the woman, sometimes you want to say this is terrific progress in other times you say wow, 20%. but it's very, very work getting women elected. so i cited emily's list because they're the bigge
that companies-x% parental consent for the use of tracking, you know, of children, on behavior. which is actually difficult to implement. and a lot of industry has been very vocal about, concerns about this. i just wanted to check where that stands. is that also going to be done by the end of the year? >> that is something fortunately we have some control over. it is an update the childrens online privacy protection act. it is rule making and we're looking at all the comments that came in and sort of weighing, weighing how to tweak the regulation and we'll finish it up by the end of the year i'm pretty sure. julia, i don't think it is as controversial as you suggested. >> everything is controversial in my view. that is what is so interesting. one of the most compelling criticisms i heard of cop pa -- copa. it disincentivizes children's cone tent because he have to get consent. as a parent i don't feel there are november places where i can feel safe for my children going online. what do you have to say for that argument? >> look, i would say, we're talking first of all, we're talking about very vu
that tell us the most about politics. everyone thinks the popular vote is close to 50-50. >> that's right. we see in the states that have closed, there are a couple of calls. obama doing great in the northeast. mitt romney, doing well in the south. states projected for obama, vermont, maine. going out on a limb. and for romney, he has georgia, indiana, south carolina, west virginia. the ones we care about, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. s
-atlantic at this hour and it could mean snow for some of us. let's go over to veronica johnson. >> yes, still a strong coastal storm. as i said yesterday, the storm system more off the coast and still trying to overcome a lot of dry air. so this is how our day has looked pretty much with really precipitation falling throughout. just got off the phone with a friend of mine up in essex, maryland, areas northeast baltimore, where there's been a few drops of rain falling there. let's take me up to philadelphia, pennsylvania, where they've had flakes of snow. in fact, bigger flakes. you can see covering the camera lens. you can see the traffic down below. philadelphia, pennsylvania, from this coastal storm, one of the areas that's expecting some of the higherccumulating snowfalls. trenton, new jersey, and up around hartford, connecticut. back to what's going on here. you can see the trend, the moisture pushing throughout the morning hours. the afternoon hours from east to west, now leesburg, d.c., waldorf, leonardtown. very few reports of much of anything falling here. in new jersey, look at that white, di
us that none of the vote has been counted. how can you say that mitt romney has won west virginia? well, all of our cbs news projections tonight will be based on the vote that has been counted and also our exit polling. we have been talking to voters in all of these states all day long as they've left the polling places and based on that exit poll information, we will project winners in these states and we will do so only when we have complete confidence in that projection. now let's look at that battleground states that we keep referring to tonight. these are the states that could go either way. these are the states that are going to tip the balance tonight for one candidate or the other. the polls have closed in a few of them, but many are still voting. in the state of virginia, we do not have a projection, but this is the tabulated vote as we see it so far. just 2% of the vote has been counted. mitt romney out with a lead there. this is a state that president obama won by 6% in 2008, but again, the mitt romney lead may or may not last because only 2% of the vote has been counte
of the presidential election not finalized for longer than any of us can imagine. vice president gore and i put our hearts and hopes into this campaign. we shared similar emotions so i understand how difficult this moment must be for vice- president gore and his family. he has a distinguished record of service to our country as a congressman, a senator, and vice-president. i received a gracious call from the vice-president this evening. we agreed to meet early next week and agreed to do our best to heal our country after this hard fought contest. tonight i want to thank all the thousands of volunteers and campaign workers who worked so hard on me -- my behalf. i also salute the vice-president and his supporters for waging a spirited campaign. i thank him for a call i know was difficult to make. we wish the vice-president and senator lieberman and their families the very best. i have a lot to be the ankle for. i am thankful french american and finkel we were able to resolve our -- think we are able to resolve our differences in a peaceful way. and thank you to the american people for the privilege o
to leave the senate you can still become a panelist with us. >> that's a deal. >> happy birthday to richard soc soc socari socarides in our last few minutes. carol costello good morning. >> god morning. and happy birthday. >>> winds, floods, now snow. >> finally got that final kind of forecast i got last night, i said i'm waiting for the locust s & p estulance next. >>> can president obama romance republicans? or are we destined for that fiscal cliff? >>> got a joint? pot is about to be legal in two states but don't light up just yet. newsroom starts now. >>> good morning. thank you so much for being with me. i'm carol cost ello. this hour, superstorm sandy has a cruel, cold kitchen following in its footsteps. this new storm is lashing the northeast with snow, rains and wind and hitting the very same areas struggling to recover from last week's devastation. up to eight inches of snow in some areas and power outages from delaware to maine. chewing into the coastline, leaving hundreds of thousands without electricity and heat. rob marciano is on new york's staten island, one of the hardest-hi
carried in 2008. >> walk us through some of the shadings here of an election desk making a call. because pennsylvania is so important, why say that it's too early and yet also say that the president has the lead? >> because you get raw vote coming in that gives you an indication of how the state is going. you have exit polls which give you an indication of how the state is going. the people in our decision desk who are very expert at this, very experienced at this, they require a very high level of confidence by matching the exit polls to what they see in key precincts and the actual vote before they're willing to say we won't get a surprise say a huge vote in the western part, more conservative part of pennsylvania for mitt romney overcoming the lead that president obama would develop in philadelphia and counties around philadelphia. they're going to be absolutely certain at an almost 100% confidence level before they'll call any of those states even if a candidate stakes out an early lead. >> thanks very much. we'll come back to you soon. joining us from romney headquarters in boston i

"outfront" tonight, markets tanked. the day after president obama wins a second term, the dow has its worst day in a year. the dow finished the day down nearly 313 points. for the first time in three months, it closed below 13,000 and when you look at the broader markets, all were down 2.5%, so is the election really to blame? "outfront" tonight, michael farr, author of restoring our american dream. good to see you. i know there were a lot of markets often go down on the day after an election and they're worry about the fiscal cliff and europe. >> you really can't tell. certainly we had a couple of point run-up prior to the election and then this morning without the distraction of all of a political punditry and bluster, we see marcus all of a sudden come back down. perhaps investors confronted the fiscal cliff and what's going on in greece. they need another $40 billion. china

ahead of us. they're right here. and we have to sit down and go to work on it now, not wait. this was the message the american people sent from all over and that is they're tired of these partisan gridlocks. they're tired of things like i have one goal, to defeat obama. that is gone. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. the american people want us to work together. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to balance the -- a balanced approach to everything. especially with the huge deficit and taxes are part of that. i can remember my first president after i had been selected as the democratic leader. i was so afraid, i really was. and as i do on occasion, off the cuff, i said i know how to fight. i know how to dance. i do not dance as well as i fight but i would much rather dense hair -- any time and i still feel that way. it is better to dance than to fight. it is better to work together ho. everything does not have to be a fight. that is how it has been the last couple of years. everyone should comprehend especially my senate frie

there was a real wine. i was afraid there would be a backlash and all of us were feeling. they were putting forth the same effort they put forward for years. the prejudices and they never really re-examine what it would mean to reconsider those tropes in those slightly shifted things. and so when you had todd akin, we'll really have to think a lot about, is that religious religion, or is it really deep and historical sense of oneness? my own little theory is that it became until recently, people like strom thurmond, the fact that so many white men, historically in this country pulled themselves that they were not the product of race and so this invisibility of the product of race is not the product of the women who must've really wanted them. otherwise it is -- it is very clear that some parts operate at a distance. >> i would also, speaking to your question about whether this is about action or reaction, and of course, i think it is all part of this so that everything is constant in action and reaction -- one thing i want to point to, i think when we talk about these kind of race comments on the
